The miracle wins pulled off by the Broncos finally came to an end Sunday with a loss at home to the Patriots. We figured Denver’s run had to end at some point because there’s only so long you can play like crap offensively for 55 minutes before turning it on to win. Honestly though, we didn’t expect New England to roll them the way they did.
After falling behind 16-7 early in the game, New England outscored Denver 34-7. Tom Brady’s big weapon in the game was Aaron Hernandez, who caught 9 passes for 129 yards and a touchdown. Even Ochostinko caught a touchdown from Brady. Tom was on the money most of the game, going 23/34 for 320 yards and two touchdowns. The offense racked up 451 yards and held the ball nearly 34 minutes. Their offense was just too much for Denver’s usually strong defense.
Tim Tebow played decently, but he lost a fumble and so did Lance Ball and Quan Cosby. The game shows us that Denver is not ready to compete with the elite teams in the league. They’re good enough to scrap out wins against many teams, but they can’t hang with elite opponents.Google+
